What is a secured lending valuation?
Whether you are securing a business loan against the value of a commercial or other premises or seeking finance to undertake a development project, a lender will require a valuation to ensure that the property they are lending against provides good security.
The purpose of having a loan valuation completed is to establish whether the amount of the loan can be secured against the value of the property and, should you default on the loan, whether the lender can realistically recoup the amount.
